    A guy in Canada wants a used stock from me. Can I legally just pack it up and send it?
    Thanks in advance!

    I really have no idea the legality.
    Hoping it goes your way.

    It’s not about the Post Office it’s ITAR regulations on this side of the border. Don’t do it.

    There is a dollor figure for gun parts, below which a licenc e is not needed. Check the Dept of Commerce website. I.m sure its $100 to NZ and a higher amount for Canada.

    I understand that, but the USPS should be able to tell him the law or if it can or can not be done.

    Saying it is firewood will get you in trouble, a friend was going into Canada to a campground in his pick up and had about 1/3 load of split firewood. They turned him back because of some kind of a bettle infestation problem in Canada.

    Don't be an idiot and listen to USPS. This is what i thought also!!! Look at what I do read below and take my word for it the answer is no. The bitch at the USPS office cost me $3,000 the answer is no. Trust me, saying it's no different then a piece of firewood or a baseball bat WILL NOT GET YOU ANYWHERE the answer is no.

    I wouldn't count on them to know every law or spend the necessary time to look it up. They're not an attorney. Ultimately the person shipping it is the one who gets in trouble not them.

    I went to the local USPS office to ship a rifle, and was told USPS did not ship rifles. I asked the attendant to please check with their supervisor, as I was certain that rule only applied to hand guns.

    Even though I was correct, I wondered how a long term employee at the Post Office was not sufficiently informed about USPS laws. Sometimes you just have to depend upon yourself to navigate life's obstacles.

    In this case, I would take what jghoghunter says as gospel. $3000 is a lot for a crash course on ITAR laws.

    Absolutely correct I could have been ITAR compliant for less than that. Had I only known that I was given A LOT of bad info. from our friendly USPS SUPERVISOR not just a lowly post master.

    Not fool proof, but a quick way to check is just look up the item on OpticsPlanet. If it has the ITAR restriction, you can't.
